allie-ces-2015

A new video platform has caught our eye at the International Consumer Electronics Show 2015 in Las Vegas. It has been developed by a company based in Florida called IC Real Tech. The company calls this device the Allie and its capable of recording 720-degree video with users being able to stream it in real time to a connected smartphone.

Allie employs a dual-lens setup to capture the entire environment both vertically and horizontally. All of it is then stitched into a single feed which can be streamed in real time to a smartphone through a Wi-Fi connection.

For this purpose users require the companion app which will be released on both iOS and Android platforms. Whenever users access the video over Wi-Fi they can also interact with it by zooming in or pausing playback. There is no lag and the results are immediate, so the device itself can be moved but the 720-degree recording won’t be compromised.

The company, IC Real Tech, is going to release three variants of the Allie. The Allie Play is aimed at parents who want to keep an eye on young children, the Allie Home is meant for consumers who can use this device for both monitoring kids and security, and the Allie Pro which is meant for businesses that are in need for an advanced surveillance solution. All Allie models will be released later this year.
